Brain-Friendly Strategies for the Inclusion Classroom
Willis, Judy
Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development
If you've ever felt unprepared to teach students with learning disabilities, here's a book that will extend your brain-friendly teaching practices to address students with learning disabilities and other special challenges. Neurologist and classroom teacher Judy Willis explains how the research on how people learn can help you: (1) Build safe and supportive classroom communities for students with learning disabilities; (2) Improve the focus of students with attention disorders; and (3) Create a rich and inviting learning environment for all students in an inclusive classroom. To help you make the right accommodations and interventions, the book provides lots of sample lessons, teaching strategies, and tips: (1) What kinds of physical accommodations are more supportive of students' diverse learning styles; (2) Why to offer more choice and a wider variety of participation options; (3) What to do before, during, and after a test to reinforce learning and memory; (4) How to make learning more permanent with more multisensory lessons; and (5) Why it's important to include physical movement in classes with ADHD students.
